    I have not seen storms like these in quite some times. There was lightening, thunder and heavy winds yesterday that blew in sheets of rain down upon us.

    The courtyard in my complex was flooded, no sidewalks just water everywhere.

    Every year after heavy rains like these, the wildflowers show up everywhere. I will have my camera in hand to capture them. :)

    There is a large pine tree down across the neighborhood's private road. I was coming home and put the Jeep in low-range 4X4 and drove up the embankment and around it. The power is still on. It's VERY WINDY (65 mph gusts, supposedly). All is well.

    So far, so good. We need the rain, but dang, it could come a little less ferocious, lol.

    Over the course of lunch on Tuesday in San Francisco -- at a very cool organic gourmet hole in the wall called Triptych, delicious food -- the weather went from blue skies, sunny and mild to cold, thunder, lightning and rain. Of course, I happened to press my luck that day and was out in shorts and sandals when the apocalypse rolled in. The weather was going back and forth like that all day. Yesterday wasn't much better. I've seen far worse storms, but never such rapid changes between weather systems; 4 or 5 a day.

    The wind is howling outside. The strongest I've ever seen it here.

    I have to flow to Sacramento tomorrow for a memorial service. I hope the weather lets up before then.
